The Project requests Historic Site Plan and Architectural Review approval for remodel and repair of the subject property’s existing rear façade facing North Water Street, including structural repairs of brick and stone, replacement of existing stairs and landing, and rehabilitation, replacement, removal of windows and doorways, and installation of a new awning. The proposal includes minor changes to the south elevation near the eastern façade (Washington Street) and no changes to the west elevation (Petaluma Boulevard North). Minor site improvements would be implemented in the existing parking area, including a fenced-in patio area, stairs and accessible ramps, and an improved trash enclosure. The proposal is also seeking a warrant to reduce the ground level transparency from the required 75 percent to 33 percent. Compliance with the transparency requirement would require greater modifications to the existing historic building that would require further removal of historic materials; as such, the applicant is seeking a warrant from this requirement.
